Rowan McFarlane box
Born and living on the Northern Rivers for all of his 58 years, Rowan McFarlane has had an ongoing interest in local timbers since childhood. For the past 15 years he has used mainly salvaged and reclaimed timbers to produce turned bowls , lidded boxes and pendants. Many objects feature inlaid stones, shells & coins. He tries to keep the forms simple to highlight the natural colour and grain features of the timbers.
